- to support participatory, inclusive and transparent decision making on HIV/AIDS at a national and international level
- to enable those most affected by HIV/AIDS to communicate their concerns and perspectives to national and international media and policy agents
- to inform international policy and donor processes on HIV communication through Southern-originated, Southern-driven information and analysis.
